Clean and simple

Often my favorite outfits are those that are clean and simple — and the best time for that kind of dressing is summer. During the cooler months, I want to layer and pile blazer on top of vest on top of shirt. But in summer, I’m forced to keep things simple, and nothing says that better than a T-shirt and jeans. The way to keep it interesting? A pop of color and print, along with updated jeans in white. (It is post-Memorial Day, after all, if you’re into the old-school fashion rules.) 

City bikes

Happy Monday! Oh, wait … it’s Tuesday. My four-day weekend/vacation has really set me up for a confusing week, but it was well worth it. Stay tuned later this week for more pics from my trip to Southern Utah to visit a few of the national parks.

As far as my outfit goes, I know I can always count on some shopping during a trip to Utah to spruce up my wardrobe. This top from Macy’s was less than $10, and it makes me want to hop on a bike and take a ride around the city. (I wish I had room in my apartment for a bike — here’s hoping it happens one day! A fold-up bike is on my wish list at the moment.) 

Spending spring in stripes

Just a little early-morning shopping trip. This spring, I plan on living in stripes … along with these destroyed boyfriend jeans. Isn’t this necklace fun? I found it at Francesca’s for $10. Score!

Happy Wednesday! This week is flying by. It’s been a busy one, but a productive one (the best kind).

I love cheeky things (pun intended), so when this scarf was sitting in my local TJ Maxx just waiting to be picked up — on clearance, no less — I couldn’t wait to wear it. I haven’t been wearing many scarves lately, but the lip print on this one was too fun to ignore!

Indian summer dressing

Dress: Derek Lam for Target (similar—on sale!) | Booties: Payless (similar) | Clutch: Francesca’s (similar) | Necklace: Garage sale (similar) | Sunnies: Lauren Conrad (similar) | Ring: Forever 21Nails: Essie’s Vested Interest

When Indian summer hits and all I want to do is layer and wear fall clothes, the only thing to do is to dress simply. I’m glad I kept my summer dresses out for days such as this. Red, navy and touches of gold? It’s the very best of summer — hopefully until next April or May.

P.S. Isn’t my fox ring cute? You can get yours at F21 for less than $3!
